The deputy was able to stop the car there, but investigators say Shepherd ran off.

They say McFall, Lewis, April Sanderson, and a 3-year-old girl were also in the car.

The sheriff's department says they also found prescription pills and drug paraphernalia in the car. Investigators say they also found more stolen items from Gray Metal in the trunk of the car.

McFall, Lewis, and Sanderson were arrested at the scene.

Investigators say the 3-year-old was turned over to social services.

Later that night, the sheriff's department says they received a tip as to Shepherd's whereabouts.

When police showed up at a home in Laurel County where Shepherd was, they say he jumped out a window in an attempt to escape. However, police able to arrest him.
